Do you mean Black Brush Algae- tufts on the margins of leaves, or Blue Green 
Algae- a slimy green film on leaves and gravel?

I picked up some Bllack Brush Algae in one of my tanks, possibly it hitched a 
ride with some plants I bought from That Fish Place last month. It was really 
starting to take over before I noticed it.
I have 3 SAE's left from 6 that I bought over 5 years ago. I moved them into 
this tank about a week ago, and SHAZAM those guys have been like machines, the 
BBA is about 80% gone.I think some time ago someone posted that SAE's only 
eat this stuff when they're young but don't believe it. My guys have been 
working overtime on this stuff.
